in thread CB history - not an hour any more?

someone can do that, but let's agree that it's not public

In this case, I don't think it matters if it's public. If it's that easy, the FBI could setup a system to run that command all the time and grep through the log as needed.

    Last time I checked, the FBI isn't allowed to do things we can't do either. If it's illegal in New Hampshire, it's illegal for the FBI in New Hampshire. Of course, the FBI could get a wiretap order from a judge in pursuit of a criminal matter, and then it's a different story entirely.

    All I'm saying is that I want us to agree that we don't make such logs public. Please stick to the point.

      Well, it isn't illegal for "us" to log the chatterbox, is it? So the FBI (or the CIA, or the NSA, or any of the other god-knows-how-many intelligence departments the USA has) can do it. Not that I think for one second any of those services is going to say "oh, it's illegal, let's leave them alone". Not to mention foreign secret services. And then I haven't even talked about individuals who can log the chatterbox if they want to.

      Not that I think for one second that there's anyone or anything interested in logging the chatterbox who isn't familiar enough with Perlmonks to know at least a handful of tools to log the chatterbox.

      If you are afraid of saying something in public that's going to haunt you - don't speak up, specially not on the internet. Because if the internet is good in one thing, it's remembering the things we wish it wouldn't.

    They can do it even if it's not that easy.

    Come on, people. You say it in public, it's public.

    Please don't argue that the feds recording everything uttered in the cb is like if they had hidden microphones in the local bar. It's actually like you and your buddies having a very loud conversation in a recording studio. You know the risks when you speak. You've had plenty of forewarning.

    That being said -- I was comfortable with the 1-hour limit. I could be comfortable with 4-6 hours. 24 hours seems excessive to me.
